In move to fight climate change Biden admin axes Alaska oil gas leases

The Department of the Interior (DOI) rescinded the seven 10-year leases — spanning 365,775 acres in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) — held by the Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority (AIDEA) and supported by a wide range of stakeholders, including lawmakers and Native Alaskans. The leases were issued by the Trump administration in one of its final actions.The DOI also issued a proposal to block off 13 million acres of land across the National Petroleum Reserve (NPR), an area in North Slope Borough, Alaska, set aside by Congress for resource development, and an additional 2.8 million of acres in the Beaufort Sea off the northern coast of Alaska, from oil and gas leasing. Interior Secretary Deb Haaland said canceling AIDEA's leases and blocking off acreage in the NPR and Beaufort Sea would help the U.S. fight climate change.https://www.foxnews.com/politics/biden-admin-axe-alaska-oil-gas-leases-backed-state-lawmakers-native-americans?intcmp=tw_fnc

              Great. This decision aligns with the broader global effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and transition away from fossil fuels.
